2019 NAACP Image Awards: “Us” Star Lupita Nyong’o in Giambattista Valli Couture

Posted on April 01, 2019

Happy Monday morning, darlings! It’s springtime, the birds are singing, and the roster of celebrity style pickins’ is suddenly bursting at the seams after weeks of red carpets with tumbleweeds blowing across them. One celebrity who has not been phoning it in or avoiding her responsibilities in the matter of giving bitches like us something to judge, is the most scary-fabulous celebrity of the moment, Miss Lupita. Since this isn’t an Us promo tour stop, she’s taken a break from her scary drag and instead has opted for one of her patented “goddess” moments.


We’re not sure we could pick our favorite style of Lupita (although the Afro-Futurism of her Black Panther tour was definitely a high point), but if there’s one thing girlfriend can do in her sleep, it’s serve up a classic goddess look on the red carpet. The color and style give this look an earthy, mother-goddess sort of feel to it, but it’s definitely not lacking in glamour and drama. The subtle sparkle of the jewelry is well chosen. We love the shape of her hair and the side braids, but the little wisps aren’t look deliberate, which is a problem. But because it’s the only one we can find, it’s not a particularly pressing problem. Miss Woman is serving it.
